We can prepare your legal will so as to best reduce the possibility of such a claim saving your estate the cost of an expensive legal dispute.
+ Dying without a Last Will and Testament would cause those who will have to deal with your affairs a lot of problems, because they may not be sure of how you want your estate distributed after your death. They will be obliged by law to deal with the estate and distribute it in a particular way, which may not be what you would have chosen.
